“On December 8, 1999, two documents were signed – on the creation of the Union State and the program for the implementation of this agreement. So, nobody touches the agreement, everything remains in force as it is. And the program needs updating, because a lot of things have appeared: you are under sanctions, we are under sanctions, there was a recession, and now the coronavirus has appeared. Therefore, for three years we went to this, approached this in two steps “,
– added the diplomat, expressing the hope that all issues on the latest roadmap will be resolved by that time.
The latest, not yet fully agreed upon, road map for integration concerns energy resources.
The Intergovernmental Working Group on Integration was created in 2019, at the same time 31 roadmaps were developed, after the merger of some of them, 28 remained in the end.
According to the Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko, these roadmaps will determine the interaction of the two countries in the next few years, and in some cases, until 2027.
